    If you actually start reading what I write without prejudice and personal attacks, I would not consider you impolite, and I would probably take more interest in debating with you..

    What is even more sad is the people who thanked your post.

    Then why are you arguing with ME and telling ME that I am wrong about my views regarding America and Americans when my views align with the average American about America? Sorry buddy... you apparently just can't see how hopelessly out of your depth you are.

    Yes. But there is a reason I am on an American forum in the first place. I know I am outnumbered here, by nationalist Americans, flag wavers, agenda followers, people who cant think and so fourth who will no matter what defend America, and claim it is best, and will at the same time always blame things on everyone else, and always put claim to absurd things about America. They will even ignore reality to believe America is best.

    I find this quite amazing, and to me its clear proof that the American mainstream, and Americans with above average interest for politics, whom should be better informed, are all under manipulation by some sort of permanent and quite sick agenda.

    There are a number of quite informed people here, many who are much more informed than you on America politics. In fact, you have far too many preconceived notions to really be well informed on American politics.

    So you admitted that you were wrong with that "yes"? that didn't make sense...

    As Redress says, there are more than a few of us that are educated and informed Americans on this forum that you completely dismiss and call, "nationalist Americans, flag wavers, agenda followers, people who cant think and so fourth who will no matter what defend America, and claim it is best, and will at the same time always blame things on everyone else, and always put claim to absurd things about America. They will even ignore reality to believe America is best" and THAT is the joke in debating you, my friend.

    There is a reason stupid people will never understand smart people and smart people never understand stupid people..

    Yes, I am in minority, almost always. And yes, it can be frustrating, but I deal with it.

    The American Political System serves people like Maximus. It serves them better than they would think!

    It gives them a sense of purpose.

    It gives them hobbies.

    More importantly it gives them a lovely potpourri to sniff to take their mind off the smell of what they themselves are knee deep in.

    Mine is most likely deeper and broader than yours.

    If you deny stupid people has problems understanding smart people then certainly there is something wrong with your interpretation of reality. And also if you deny smart people have problems understanding stupid people, then your interpretation of reality simply lacks depth.

    If you think smart people is in majority, then there is something wrong with your logic.

    Also, if you think education is synonymous with intelligence then your logic simply fails and is too narrow and you have too little of it.
